It was Saturday in Cloverleaf
Corners. Margaret and Halley ate breakfast on the
patio outside. Margaret wiped blueberries off Halley's
hands and picked up her juice. "CLASH, CLATTER,
CRASH!" "Oh my, will your brother and father survive
while we go shopping today?" cried out Margaret.
"Piers, please listen to me.
I need you to help your father today. Please be good.
I am taking Halley shopping. And don't forget to work
on your science project for school."
Margaret put Halley in the
carriage. The two were on their way to Cloverleaf
Village to shop. Each time Margaret passed a
neighbour's house, she waved to say hello.
"Let's see, where can we go?"
whispered Margaret. Halley curiously looked up at her
from the pink baby carriage. Margaret hummed merrily
along the way. Her mind wandered. She wondered
if Brie Norwood still worked at The Honey Bee Clover dress
shop. She hoped so.
Margaret pushed the carriage
into the store. Halley started giggling. "Well,
hello my dear friend Meg," Brie said cheerfully.
"I would love to help you find what you are looking for."
Meg's eyes brightened as she
gazed at racks of sweet dresses. Halley began to
squirm. Meg's baby girl wanted to be in her mother's
arms. She picked her up and gave her a hug and a kiss.
"We are looking for a Birthday
Party dress," explained Meg. Brie replied, "I have the
dress for you!" She held up the powder blue dress for
her friend. "What do you think?" asked Brie. "I
will try it, but are you sure it is my size?" asked Meg.
"Let me quickly measure you," said Brie. Meg could not
wait to try the dress.
After a few minutes, she walked
out of the dressing room to show Brie. Brie said,
"It's adorable. I will hem it about one inch."
Meg wondered how her friend always knew what she was
thinking. Brie went on to say, "Halley picked this
dress for herself while you were in the dressing room.
She kept pulling the blue bow." The baby's eyes opened
a little wider. Halley reached up and tried grabbing
the dress one more time. Brie and Meg laughed.
"She must like it," said Meg. "I think so," Brie
agreed. "Maybe she would like to try it on."
Meg turned from side to side
looking at the beautiful dress in the mirror while Brie
dressed Halley. Looking prettier than ever, Halley
giggled in excitement. "It looks like Halley likes her
dress as much as I like mine," Meg said. "Halley,
would you like to wear that dress to the party?" she asked.
With a smile and a nod the decision was final. "We
will take both dresses!"
Meg gave Brie a big hug.
"Brie, you are so special to Halley and me. Thank you
for helping us today. Will we see you at the birthday
party?" asked Meg. "Of course, I would not miss it,"
